Direction vector with start point A and endpoint B. v Z Z Y Y X X AB A B A B A B D = , , Make sure you keep start point and endpoint consistent. Vector Cross Product (Vector Product) V = P X Q , V = PQ sin θ , where θ is the angle between the two vectors V and Q . V X = P Y Q Z – P Z Q Y V Y = P Z Q X – P X Q Z VZ = P X Q Y – P Y Q X , or use the determinate expansion method: Z Y X Z Y X Q Q Q P P P k j i ˆ ˆ ˆ = V
